The Case Files of Aldicus Vescard
Crime ever turns in the Clockwork City...
Detective Aldicus Vescard knows all too well the monsters and madmen who prowl the fog-veiled streets of Corradon. He is, after all, a monster himself. Cursed in his errant past, his body harbors an infernal fiend of pure elemental chaos, clawing to break free and destroy all that he holds dear.
But crime ever turns in the Clockwork City, and none are more suited to investigate those sinister deeds of criminal sorcery than the city’s greatest detective magus. With his loyal apprentice and a host of street-smart allies, Aldicus faces a crucible of villainy with only his wits and the science of forensic alchemy to aid him.
Yet, in the decaying depths far below the tick-tock city, there festers an even greater evil—a darkness that threatens not only the Clockwork City of Corradon, but the fate of their entire world.
The Case Files of Aldicus Vescard recounts a series of fantastical and bizarre murder cases, presenting clues to a diabolical mystery more terrible than any Aldicus has faced before. Although each case file can be read as its own story, they progress as episodes of a single overarching narrative.
